    A king of Kapilavastu and the Shakya tribe in ancient India, the father of Shuddhodana and grandfather of Shakyamuni.

The first son was Shuddhodana, the second Shuklodana, the third Dronodana, and the fourth Amritodana; the daughter was Amrita. Simhahanu was also the grandfather of Ananda, Aniruddha, and Devadatta.
